 KITCHENS & BATHROOMS
Ask any estate agent, or even buyer, and they'll say it's the kitchen and bathrooms that really sell houses. These are the spaces we inhabit the most and they can either add immense pleasure to our daily routine or real annoyance if they aren't fit for purpose. We take a look at the kitchen and bathroom trends you need to know and gather together advice from industry experts on how to design beautiful, functional spaces.
 TOP 5 FEATURES OF A LUXURY BATHROOM
If you want to transform a functional, practical bathroom into a luxurious space, then take a look at these five top tips from the Kitchen, Bathroom, Bedroom Specialists Association, Kbsa.
FREESTANDING BATHTUB
What better focal point for your luxurious bathroom than an elegant, freestanding bathtub? Similar to a walk-in shower, you can design and style a freestanding bathtub around your lifestyle and tastes, making it the ideal centrepiece for the room. A large, comfortable freestanding bathtub is what everyone needs after a long and stressful day and they really do add the 'wow' factor.
WALK-IN SHOWER
Contemporary, seamless and extremely easy to clean, walk-in showers have become very popular in recent years and there is a wealth of options to choose from. This luxurious feature also has tremendous benefits in terms of
accessibility, particularly for those with limited mobility.
HEATED, LUXURIOUS FLOORING
Bathrooms should no longer just be functional, they should be a place of tranquillity and relaxation. With this in mind, why not tackle the cold chill of winter by installing a heated floor in your increasingly luxurious bathroom?
ELEGANT BATHROOM LIGHTING
Perfecting your bathroom lighting is essential when creating a luxurious, peaceful space for your home. The perfect lighting system gives you the right balance between having enough visibility and illumination for safety purposes, without compromising on
style or luxury. The best approach is multi-level - with lighting in the vanity area for makeup application and hygiene and dimmable wall and ceiling lights for a relaxing evening bath or shower. There's also been a big rise in decorative lights like chandeliers, but it's essential these
